Meal Plan Monday 20th July 2015

I am having to get a tad more organised  as it's the summer holidays and I am going back to online shopping, taking those two boys to do a weekly shop would not be fun in the slightest.

Monday - Cabbage, potato and chorizo  bake from the lovely Rachel Allen's Easy meals - I always pre  cook my potatoes so they go fluffy when roasting and cook this in the oven for time and allowing me to finish other jobs. The boys will have mini roast potatoes with a tomato sauce.

Tuesday -    From my slow cooker cookbook a Caribbean style chicken dish

Wednesday - I am going to do a quorn  Chinese meal I will be honest the sauce will brought in for this one as we need quick simple meals some days. However if healthier I may try this one as it does not take too long. The boys love noodles so I will do this for them as well.l

Thursday - A lovely BBC Good Food meal that's healthy and tasty. The boys hate bits so they will have carbonara…

All day morning sickness

As most of you are aware we are expecting our third child with the rather amusing due date of 01-01-2016, also I am sure you have been aware that the posts have dried up including the weekly meal plans. This is a short post to fill in some gaps about those first three months. 

The main reason for the lack of the food posts has been the joys of pregnancy sickness, please do not worry I am not going into any details. I know some poor woman get this very badly and can end up in hospital, I am lucky and no where near that bad. However I feel sick 24 hours a day, from the time I wake up to when I go to bed and can and frequently wake in the night still feeling ill. I have tried every form of eating to make this go away, I eat large meals and no snacking, I have tried snacking all day the test result's have revealed shock horror that nothing works. I also tried giving the bump a firm talking too, I am being ignored before the baby is even born.

Of course you do not like to tell people for…
